Are You An Ambitious and Talented Team Player?

Finance sector companies are looking for committed staff with specialist expertise across a broad range of disciplines, so no matter what your academic specialism they could be interested in you.

So please join us and spend some time demonstrating your asset value in a fun, competitive and fast moving financial markets challenge. 

You’ll also get the chance to engage our panel of company representatives in a Q&A session and the winners will get a chance to ‘shadow’ an employee of one of our supporting companies. 

Don’t miss this opportunity to join representatives of several major local companies — Augentius, Citi, Deloitte, First Derivatives, Fintru, FSCom, Funds-Axis and PwC - and connect with us.

Places are limited so be sure to register as soon as you can. Refreshments will be provided.Prizes

There's a cash prize of £140 for the winning team at each event. Our supporting employers have offered an 'Insight Day' opportunity for the top traders at each event. This is a great opportunity to get a first hand insight into the work of our employers and a tangible experience to add to your CV.

Finance Lab

Finance Lab is a dual screen simulation game set in a fictitious world financial market. The aim of the game is to increase the value of a starting fund by trading in company shares and commodities.

Players work in pairs on two linked screens in the roles of Investment Analyst and Media Analyst. 

The 12 listed companies are based in different parts of the globe, with each operating in a different sector of the economy.  Cotton, oil and wheat are also traded on the market.

Investment decisions are based on the analysis of price and market data, and the interpretation of news stories.  The winning team is the one with the highest-valued fund at the close of trading.
